Combattants et anciens combattants au prisme des transformations de l’Etat

avec le soutien du LabEx TEPSIS, de la  Faculté de Philosophie et Sciences sociales de l’ULB (CEVIPOL) et du CETOBAC (CNRS-EHESS),

EHESS 54 bd Raspail, 75006 PARIS,

salle AS1_24 (sous-sol)

Cette journée d’étude s’inscrit dans le cadre du séminaire “Combattants et anciens combattants dans des Etats en transformation” à l’EHESS ; elle mettra l’accent sur les anciens combattants, leurs trajectoires d’après-guerre, leur rôle dans les sociétés en recomposition, et sur le rapport entretenu avec les États en (re)construction par le biais d’associations, de partis politiques, d’ONG mais aussi au travers de leur investissement dans l’économie, que ce soit sous une forme légale ou non, ou dans de nouvelles situations d’usage de la violence (lors de manifestations, d’opérations  de maintien de l’ordre ou dans de nouveaux conflits armés). Après une session exposant les limites des approches en termes de DDR (Désarmement, démobilisation, réintégration), la journée d’étude s’articule autour de deux questionnements : que fait l’Etat aux anciens combattants ? Que font les anciens combattants à l’Etat ? Continuer la lecture de Workshop – Combattants et anciens combattants au prisme des transformations de l’Etat – 27 juin 2018 – 9h30/16h

Article – “How Russia Treats Its Ukraine Veterans. Returning volunteer fighters have been treated more like an inconvenience than as national heroes.”

By Christopher Miller

Russian volunteer Andrei Kamayev arrived in war-torn eastern Ukraine in late September 2014, bursting with patriotic bravado and convinced that he was following in the footsteps of his grandfather—a Soviet intelligence officer in World War II—by fighting against “fascists and Nazis.”

Using terms propagated by the Kremlin to describe Ukrainian government forces fighting Russia-backed separatists, the 49-year-old Kamayev admits to other motives for joining up: He also wanted to help restore the Russky Mir, or “Russian World,” and stave off the perceived encroachment of NATO.

MOSCOW/ST. PETERSBURG — Russian volunteer Andrei Kamayev arrived in war-torn eastern Ukraine in late September 2014, bursting with patriotic bravado and convinced that he was following in the footsteps of his grandfather — a Soviet intelligence officer in World War II — by fighting against “fascists and Nazis.”

Using terms propagated by the Kremlin to describe Ukrainian government forces fighting Russia-backed separatists, the 49-year-old Kamayev admits to other motives for joining up: he also wanted to help restore the “Russky Mir,” or Russian World, and stave off the perceived encroachment of NATO.

But his dream of military glory came to a quick and devastating end on February 1, 2015. As Kamayev followed a convoy of tanks during an assault near the strategic town of Debaltseve — then Ukrainian-controlled — a mortar shell exploded beside him, shredding part of his left leg. He was evacuated to a nearby hospital, but without the proper medicine to treat him, gangrene set in and doctors were forced to amputate the rest of his leg up to his hip…..
